Union students help clean up the city

Nearly 300 Union students helped spruce up the city and surrounding area for the 17th annual John Calvin Toll Day.

Coordinated by Union’s Kenney Community Center and a number of city organizations, Toll Day provides service learning opportunities and strengthens Union’s commitment to the city.

Volunteers helped clean up parks, monuments and a variety of other public spaces.

John Calvin Toll Day is named for one of Union's first graduates in 1799. It has been supported each year by Al Hill ‘46 and his wife, Perrie. Toll was the great-great-grandfather of Hill, a retired attorney from Buffalo who died in 2007. The Hills created the fund to encourage Union students to undertake volunteer service.
